14 Dec 2013 : When Jackie Huang's first daughter was born, he tried to search for unique toys that were safe, durable and well designed. The hunt turned out to be disappointing as he only found cheap, plastic products, so he ended up making his own stuffed animals.
11 Nov 2013 : What monarchs and dictators have in common is that having power, inherited or usurped, they are determined to keep it _ and indeed enhance it to the fullest extent possible. They are aware that there are those eager to displace them. Sometimes rivals make no secret of it; appearing to be supporters, while waiting to make their move.
11 Nov 2013 : Malcolm Gladwell champions the underdog in this, his most recent book, a collection of stories about people saddled with various handicaps who somehow put apparent drawbacks to good use and go on to defeat a much stronger foe. He explains how an Englishman named T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia) was able to incite a disparate band of Arabs to revolt against the far superior forces of the Ottoman Empire and, against all the odds, win; and why a man from Mumbai was able to coach a gaggle of unskilled 12-year-olds to a level where they beat every basketball team they met in court. In Gladwell's opinion, the dyslexia that Gary Cohn, former senior executive at Goldman Sachs, had battled since childhood could account for a personality that resorted to a little trickery to pull off coups on Wall Street. Gladwell notes that Londoners who survived near-misses during the Blitz in the early 1940s emerged from the rubble of bombed buildings feeling much stronger than before.

10 Nov 2013 : OK, so I think we can agree the whole amnesty idea was a dud. It was probably one of those great ideas on paper when Thaksin Shinawatra and his closest allies fleshed it out in Dubai, or a casino in Cambodia or even, as some sources claim, in his home town of Chiang Mai.
10 Nov 2013 : After hits with Rudimental, the fresh-faced neo-soul sensation puts his smouldering voice to good use on a debut solo album bristling with relentless energy.
10 Nov 2013 : Earlier this year we may have witnessed a watershed moment in the sexualisation of Thai pop music. At the very least it was a water closet moment.
10 Nov 2013 : Anyone who pays attention to the culinary scene here knows that it is constantly in motion. New dishes appear and old favourites recede. Influences from abroad are absorbed, and new approaches are taken to the way ingredients are used as different ones because available or appropriate. Flavours alter, too, in response to shifting preferences. But once a given dish stops changing it means that it has reached an ideal and stable form.
10 Nov 2013 : After making a name for herself as one of Thailand's top marine biologists, Hansa Chansang took advantage of an early retirement scheme to pursue her other passion: growing trees. She cleared most of her family's rubber plantation in Cherngtalay, near the popular Laguna tourist area in Phuket's Thalang district, and planted it with many different species of forest trees. Visiting her plantation recently, I marvelled not only at how tall her trees have grown since I last saw them five years ago, but also at the diversity of wild plants growing on the floor of the man-made forest.
10 Nov 2013 : Soy Raya is the mother of Soy Petch and Soy Ngen. The two female kittens are about five months old. They are all neutered. They are very friendly to people.
